After a rash of slave rebillions, uprisings, ruanways, and acts of sabotage because of our reistance to slavery.....THEY gave us widespread church services to slaves, offering a promising message of hope.....BUT this new religion taught the slaves to obey their masters, and wait for heaven after death instead of fighting for change.

After a Civil War between the North and South over ECONOMIC reasons (not slavery) in the 1860's, which threatened to tear the U.S. apart.....THEY gave us the abolition of slavery in states the seceded, to weaken the South.....BUT free slaves soon became poor sharecroppers, while the prison system expanded as a way to reenslave Blacks.

After civil disobedience, militant Blacks, and internationl shock brought attention to the Civil Rights movement in the 60's.....THEY gave us the Civil Rights Bill, along with school and neighborhood desegregation.....BUT Blacks then stopped supporting Black business and building Black communities, while our students' education worsened.

After Hiphop began earning big money with large audiences in the early 80's.....THEY gave us major record deals and distribution, as well as radio airtime......BUT they began influencing the conent of the music, so the audiences would gradually get dumbed down.

After Blacks became interested inhome ownership and the lucrative real estate business in the late 90's.....THEY gave us a significant rise in Black home ownership through easy-to-secure loans.....BUT most of the loans were examples of predatory lending, and Blacks suffered worst as the real estate market crashed.

After the people backing George W. Bush stole the first election, partly by keeping many Blacks from voting in 2000.....THEY gave us Condoleeza Rice, the first Black Secretary of State.....BUT Rice worked against not only the interests of Blacks, but all Americans, by becoming the international face of the Bush Doctrine.

After hundreds of countries thoughout the world are at odds with America,even more so since the Bush presidence.....THEY gave us a Black president, who the world loves, hoping he'll bring about real change in American policy.....Then what happened? Time will tell.

Do you think Obama is their last card they could play?

What else could they do to keep hope up and prevent restless people grab onto weapons?
